ChiSox's Jeff Samardzija looks to get past empty-stadium start in Baltimore
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5:19 pm ET) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija was rocked during his last start against the Orioles, allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings, but he said he's hoping the oddity of the situation, an empty Camden Yards, was the reason, according to the Chicago Tribune

"The other side of me looks at it for what it was from afar - a very unique game and very unique situation," Samardzija said. "For me, it was about that routine and being off for over a week, and that's why it's easy to turn the page and move on to the next one."

Samardzija takes the mound for his next start Tuesday against the Tigers.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rangers' Rougned Odor out of the lineup Monday, may be optioned
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Astros with Adam Rosales taking his place and batting sixth, the team announced.

Odor has started the last seven games in a row at second, but general manager Jon Daniels is considering a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Daniels is preaching for his position players to step up and Odor is one of them. He is hitting just .148 with nine RBI in 81 at-bats this season.

"We believe he is part of the solution, not part of the problem," Daniels said to the Dallas Morning News. "He is working on some things. We're looking for some improvement."

The Rangers are currently the underdogs (+200) against Houston.
